A firm protested a Navy solicitation for power supply systems, contending that the solicitation's mandatory brand-name specification unduly restricted competition. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest after bid opening; (2) protester's telephone conversation with Navy procurement personnel did not constitute an agency-level protest; (3) protester's reliance on erroneous oral advice did not excuse its untimely filing; and (4) protest did not meet the significant issue exception to the timeliness rule. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
